      Depending on your personal view of Microsoft, you can follow the PR line of eXPeriance.

      Or go with the radical view of eXtra Proffits.

      Thanks for these clarifications. I always thought XP to stand for eXtra Problems, noting the first week using XP that at least 20 times it wanted to send error reports to MS. I must admit, currently I get these messages only a few times a week.

      I spoke with a most professional lady, (“Grace”), at Microsoft Canada’s Customer Relations and she clarified that XP does NOT mean Extra Profit… but instead means “Experience”.
